    Prospect to buy horse

    9 yrs old. Very green, but willing to learn. She is straight egyptian. 14.3 sorry they are not the best pictures I took them when I went out to see the horse. I loved her as she was very willing and behaved well... She just didnt know what we wanted, but is a very good girl. 200.00 So I think she is well worth it. She was abuse before so she is a little head shy but 99.99% of my horses were abuse cases so I am attracted to those Tell me what you think....

    She is very very over at the knee. Not a good broodie prospect if that's what you're looking for.

    If she is green they should not have that bit in her mouth. A snaffle should be the only bit you use on a greenie, IMO.

    Hmmm. She may be worth the $200 initial cost but is she going to be worth of your feed and maintinence cost? I do not like to looks of her backend. She looks awfully weak through hip stifle and down to her hocks. She also looks quite long backed and over in the knee. She doesn't look like she will ever be a great riding horse or stay sound. It is your money and time but I would pass her up.

    It looks like that por girl has been thru quite a bit. I don't know if it's the angle of the photo or the really uneven terrain but she looks really over at the knee. My main concern with that especially to that degree is how long she is going to be sound for. I have seen a couple horses who were over at the knee do the 1m40 without soundness issues but I have also personally owned 1 horse who was over at the knee who quickly developped bad arthritis and become unsound.

    It breaks my heart to say it for the sake of that poor animal, but I would pass that one on :(

    This poor animal looks undernourished and needs a good grooming. Before putting a saddle on her and expecting her to work, I would get a thorough vet check of the poor thing. Has she been wormed recently (if ever?).
    God, I hate to see horses that look like this!

    I don't think she is undernourished. I went with Heather to look at the horse, and she is very fat. She is fed well with what the lady told us. But I do have to agree, she does look over the knee a little bit. I didn't really notice it when I was looking at her, but looking at the pictures, it does look like she is.
